I was looking through a D&D monster book and came across this creature, the Odopi:

I wanted to animate it without any hand keyframing, using only mel, dynamics and expressions.

Here's a wip of the low-poly arms compared to the normal mapped arms:

Here's a sample of the animation setup in progress:

Still have a long way to go, but the basic rig setup is working. Now need to massage the dynamics to match an environment, not to mention creating the environment ;)

Thoughts, comments, crits, all welcome :)
